Spot gold may retest support at $1,818

Reuters SINGAPORE | Updated on February 16, 2021

Spot gold is expected to retest a support at $1,818 per ounce, a break below which could cause a fall to $1,801.

The metal is riding on a wave C from $1,875.26, which is far from complete. It is expected to travel to $1,726, its 100% projection level.

Three smaller waves make up the wave C. The small wave c is unfolding. Resistance is at $1,830, a break above which could lead to a gain to $1,840.

A further gain above $1,840, however, could indicate an extension of the uptrend from the Feb. 4 low of $1,784.76towards $1,853-$1,875 range. On the daily chart, signals are a bit neutral as gold is temporarily stuck in a range of $1,805-$1,841. An escape could suggest the next direction.
